Development plan of the Pan-European Transmission System 2050

In response to the call ENERGY.2012.7.2.1, the objective of e-Highway2050 was to develop a top-down planning methodology to provide the first version of a modular and robust expansion plan for the Pan-European Transmission Network from 2020 to 2050, in line with the pillars of European energy policy.

The project was aimed at developing a methodology to support the planning of the Pan-European Transmission Network focusing on 2020 to 2050, to ensure the reliable delivery of renewable electricity and Pan-European market integration.
